During my research career, I specialised in the modelling of electronic and mechanical properties of low dimensional materials. My work was mainly oriented towards understanding the piezoelectric effect, flexoelectricity, and phenomena arising upon straining or stacking different materials. This resulted in 18 publications, many of which were done in collaboration with universities in the US, China, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere.
Since joining NLO, I was able to use my research experience to benefit our clients seeking advice and protection of their intellectual property. Degrees in electrical engineering and physics provided me with a solid background in a wide range of technological domains and the IP knowledge I am gaining at NLO helps me to “translate” the invention from a research language to a patent language.
